Among the nine bands on an exciting and newly announced compilation CD project called Old Hills, Young Mountain, which is funded by a Kickstarter campaign (we donated and you should too – and we’ll be covering a few of the bands this week), is a band led by Michigan folk singer-songwriter Jeremy Quentin called Small Houses.
A Berklee grad from Flint, now living in Kalamazoo, Quentin is currently running a Kickstarter campaign of his own to fund the release of his third record, which is titled North. As he notes on the campaign page, the songs “describe the lustrous image of the Northern regions throughout the Midwest while comparing the particular placement of the region to remarkable moments in any person’s life.”
Quentin’s voice, finger-picking and writing are easy to like. Fans of the Tallest Man on Earth will like him. Small Houses will play at Rockwood on the Lower East Side on April 2nd. See his full tour here and a few videos below.
